When the police fall down on the job, Jimmy Justice stands up for New Yorkers by making gotcha videos of NYPD officers. (5:36)

I ALREADY KNOW THEY DROPPED A

HOUSE ON A WITCH AND YOU KNOW

SHE'S IN THE 1%.

THE POINT IS, FOLKS, I'M FED UP

WITH PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY CAN

LAZE AROUND AND BE A DRAIN ON

SOCIETY.

I DON'T DO THAT.

I WORK HARD TO BE A DRAIN ON

SOCIETY.

(LAUGHTER)

TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT AND

FALSIFIED PAPERWORK TO COLLECT

VETERANS BENEFITS.

DON'T BELIEVE ME?

ASK 90-YEAR-OLD D-DAY VETERAN

COLBERT T. STEVENSON.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE, SIR.

FORTUNATELY, THERE ARE HEROES

OUT THERE LOOKING OUT FOR THE

REST OF US.

TONIGHT WE SALUTE ONE.

>> SOCIETY REQUIRES LAWS IN

ORDER.

POLICEMEN ARE THE HEROES WHO

UPHOLD THAT ORDER.

BUT EVEN THEY CAN MAKE MISTAKE.

>> NEW CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED

AGAINST THE PLIFRP WHO ADMITS TO

CONFISCATING MARIJUANA AND THEN

BAKING IT IN BROWNIES.

>> I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S IN THE

BROWNIES AND I THINK TIME IS

GOING BY REALLY, REALLY, REALLY

SLOW.

>> SO WHEN THE POLICE FALL DOWN

ON THE JOB, WHO STANDS UP FOR

US?

MEET JIMMY JUSTICE.

>> I ONLY CARRY A VIDEO CAMERA

WITH ME WHEREVER I GO AND ANY

TIME I SEE A POLICE OFFICER

DOING SOMETHING WRONG, I CAN

FILM IT AND PUT IT ON YOUTUBE

FOR THE WORLD TO SEE.

>> YOU JUST BROKE THE LAW!

>> JIMMY'S GOTCHA VIDEOS HAVE

GARNERED MILLIONS OF HITS ON

YOUTUBE.

ENOUGH TO EARN JIMMY JUSTICE THE

TITLE "DIFFERENCE MAKER."

WHO IS JIMMY JUSTICE?

>> I'M JUST YOUR AVERAGE NEW

YORKER WHO'S SICK AND TIRED OF

WATCHING THE POLICE DEPARTMENT

ABUSE THEIR POWER, ABUSE THEIR

AUTHORITY SUPERMAN WAS A

CHILDHOOD HERO OF MINE AND HE

WOULD STAND UP FOR JUSTICE.

>> LIKE EVERY SUPERHERO, JIMMY

JUSTICE HAS A UNIQUE ABILITY.

WHAT IS JIMMY'S SUPERPOWER?

>> JIMMY JUSTICE' REALLY, REALLY

ANNOYING.

>> YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO COVER

YOUR BADGE.

YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO COVER YOUR

BADGE!

HE HAS A CAMERA!

OH, THAT'S DANGEROUS!

I'M CALLING FOR BACKUP.

WAHH!

AREN'T YOU SUPPOSED TO WEAR

THAT?

HIDE YOUR FACE!

I ALREADY GOT YOUR FACE ON

VIDEO!

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO, BITE

ME WITH YOUR GOLD TOOTH?

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

WEARING A PEA COAT.

IT'S A LITTLE SECRETIVE.

WAAH.

YOUR DAYS OF RUNNING AROUND THIS

CITY LIKE A COWBOY ARE OVER!

I AM JIMMY JUSTICE!

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

>> JIMMY HAS BEEN THE DYNAMIC

DOUCHEBAG FOR AS LONG AS WE CAN

REMEMBER.

>> I'VE BEEN CALLED A PEST, A

GADFLY, AN ASS (BLEEP), A PIECE

OF CRAP.

DOESN'T DETERMINE ME IN ANY WAY,

SHAPE, OR FORM.

>> LIKE ALL SUPERHEROES, JIMMY

LEADS A DOUBLE LIFE.

BY DAY HE'S A MILD-MANNERED

AUDIO SYSTEMS ENGINEER.

BUT BY SLIGHTLY LATER IN THE DAY

HE'S A STALKER OF POLICE.

AND, OF COURSE, HE HAS A TRUSTY

SIDEKICK.

>> I AM ABSOLUTELY NOT JIMMY

JUSTICE'S SIDEKICK.

>> JUST WHAT A SIDEKICK WOULD

SAY.

A SIDEKICK CONCERNED FOR JIMMY'S

SAFETY.

>> I SAW THESE VIDEOS AND THE

FIRST THING I THOUGHT ABOUT WAS,

WOW, ONE DAY SOMEBODY'S GOING TO

KICK HIS ASS.

>> OH, BUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO

BE EASY.

TELL THEM WHY, JIMMY.

>> I'M TRAINED IN JUDO AND

JUJITSU AND I'M NOT AFRAID OF

SOMEBODY TRYING TO KICK MY ASS.

>> YEAH!

BRING IT ON!

(LAUGHTER)

I WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED.

I'M GOING TO KEEP DOING THIS AS

LONG AS I HAVE TO.

>> AND LIKE MANY SUPERHEROES...

>> WHO IS SPIDER-MAN?

HE'S A CRIMINAL.

>> JIMMY JUSTICE IS OFTEN

MISUNDERSTOOD.

>> I THINK JIMMY JUSTICE IS A

BOOB.

>> DON'T YOU MEAN SUPERBOOB?

>> I THINK JIMMY JOHNSON IS

OBNOXIOUS AND BORDERLINE

COMMITTING CRIMES WHILE HE'S

DOING HIS VIDEO.

>> WHEN I CATCH COPS VIOLATING

THE LAW I ALWAYS TRY TO BE

RESPECTFUL.

>> ARE YOU RETARDD?

ARE YOU ON DRUGS?

YOU BROKE THE LAW!

YOU ANIMAL.

>> BEING REALLY ANNOYING IS NOT

A GOOD IDEA.

>> WHY NOT

>> IT'S NOT PROFESSIONAL, IT'S

COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.

>> BUT SOMETIMES IT WORKS.

>> NOT IN MY EXPERIENCE.

>> SOMETIMES IT WORKS.

>> NO, I'VE NOT SEEN IT WORK

BEFORE.

>> SOMETIMES.

>> NO.

>> ANY TIME?

>> NO, NEVER.

>> WELL, SOMETIMES, BUT CLEARLY

JIMMY'S DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.

>> THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE

PUBLIC AGREE WITH ME.

90% OF THE MAIL THAT I GET IS

POSITIVE AND ENCOURAGING AND

ONLY 10% ARE DEATH THREATS.

(LAUGHTER)

>> WITH MOVES LIKE THESE IT'S

GOING TO TAKE MORE THAN 10% OF

NEW YORKERS TO STOP JIMMY FROM

HIS STOLL LEM COMMITMENT TO

BEING A COMPLETE TOOL FOR

JUSTICE.

>> GET THAT CAMERA OUT OF MY

FACE!

>> GET YOUR FACE OUT OF MY

CAMERA!

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO ENFORCE THE

LAW!

WAAH.

I AM JIMMY JUSTICE!

>> Stephen: THANK YOU, JIMMY.
